"Vintage 2005"
Our PGR has aged for 24 months on oak barrels and has been bottled for the first time on the 27th of December 2007. The main difference with the Pannepot Reserva is that PGR matured the last ten months on Calvados oak barrels, adding extra complexity to the beer. We dedicate this beer as a tribute to Jeppe & Michael of lbutikken in Denmark. Those gentlemen were the first to discover our beers on an International basis back in 2004 and are responsable somehow for our beers being all over the globe since then. As a token of gratitude towards Jeppe & Michael, the first shipment of PGR was scheduled to lbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2011
Tap @ BBF, 2008 vintage. Very dark red brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma is very powerful, fruity and strong all over the spectrum. Plums, grapes, sugar, cane sugar, some alcohol. The fruity notes seem very ripe and sweet. Everything is sweet and mellow. Lots of oak and age as well. Also some mellow coffee and belgian chocolate. Taste is very similar; strong fruits, alcohol, age and plenty of spices

sherm1016 (1273) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2011
33cl bottle from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pours a nice brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is fruity, raisin, a little oak, a little booze. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, oak, alcohol, sugar, with a dry, boozy finish. Very good, even though the alcohol is a little more noticeable than I like.

[330ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] [2005 vintage] Dark brown pour, thin lacing of off-white head. Aged in French oak and you can tell immediately. Slightly sour, vinous aroma. Plenty of alcohol on the nose, as well. Alcohol, tartness throughout the palate. Lots going on in this one tobacco at the end, as well. Big bitter finish. Very nice, really drinkable [15102011]

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2011
2005 bottle at cgarvieuks - rating #500!!!!! Very deep brown/black, bubbly cream head. Smells of everything! Fig, esters, spice, raisins... Super-complex and rich. Lovely tartness to the palate that is right up my street - also hints at cocoa and vinous red fruit. Sticky, slight vinegar finish. AWESOME.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 2006 Vintage [email protected]: black with a big mocha head, thick sweet, dark fruits, heavy, thick dark malts, slight hint of roast, slightly vinous, sweet coffee, dark chocolate, mocha ice-cream, tobacco, wood, finish is warming leaning slightly & hits you right away, towards sweet, thick hard liquor (calvados probably, I dont know how calvados tastes like), impressive amount of heat for a five year old beer, this seems fresh and not aged, great stuff

rlgk (18834) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Vintage from 2006. Black beer with a nice beige head. Malty vinous aroma, caramel, figs, raisins, bread, some spices, yeasty notes and some wood. Very impressive aroma with such a wide range of different things. Malty flavor, yeast, vinous, bready, some figs, some raisins, honey notes, some hops and yeast, woody notes and maybe some calvados. Very, very nice, a wonderful beer to sip and enjoy for a long time.

Bottle 2005 vintage. Pours a very dark brown, allmost black with a light brown solid head. Aroma is huge dark ripe fruits, chocolate, raisin, oak, soft yeasty notes, ripe plums and toffee. Taste is winey, oak, cherry, light sourness, grapes, a bit funky yeast leading to a very long duration.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 On draught at the Boreft Beer Festival, 2011. 2008 version in Calvados barrels. Pours a dark brown colour with no head and a funky musty nose. Very smooth with caramel, toffee, treacle and marzipan characters. A little dry with mild CO2 prickle and a long alcohol hum. Delicious! Also had the 2005 bottle at Craigs. Pours a very dark brown colour with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of marzipan, liquorice, balsamic vinegar and chocolate. Similar flavours with a little tartness. Such a brilliant beer.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle @ Borefts Beer Festival. 2008 vintage. Tasted along with Pannepot Reserva 2005. Pours lovely chestnut with minimal head. In many ways, this is a lot like the Pannepor Reserva, obviously, but you sense that this is a bit more young, it has some more pungent fruit notes, and the Calvados barrel add an applish touch along with a more pronounced oak character. The taste has some Calvados bitterness, sort of an applish astringency that you often get from Calvados barrels, which goes very well with the complex sweetness of the beer.
